OBJECTIVE The biological effects of the herbicide atrazine on freshwater vertebrates are highly controversial. In an effort to resolve the controversy, we conducted a qualitative meta-analysis on the effects of ecologically relevant atrazine concentrations on amphibian and fish survival, behavior, metamorphic traits, infections, and immune, endocrine, and reproductive systems. DATA SOURCES We used published, peer-reviewed research and applied strict quality criteria for inclusion of studies… CONTINUE READING
